9 Likewise, I want women to adorn themselves with proper clothing, modestly and discreetly, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly garments, 9 I also want women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or expensive clothes,
10 but rather by means of good works, as is proper for women making a claim to godliness. 10 but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God.
11 A woman must quietly receive instruction with entire submissiveness. 11 A woman should learn in quietness and full submission.
12 But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet. 12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.
13 For it was Adam who was first created, and then Eve. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve.
14 And it was not Adam who was deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression. 14 And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner.
15 But women will be preserved through the bearing of children if they continue in faith and love and sanctity with self-restraint. 15 But women will be saved through childbearing--if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety.
